This just lifted from a recent newsflash/article by Bernard McGhee of Associated Press talking about a Sentinel interview with Andrew Young regarding Walmart taking over (supposedly being a good thing) a neighborhood market versus ethnic merchant exploitation.

"Well, I think they should; they ran the `mom and pop' stores out of my neighborhood," the paper quoted Young as saying. "But you see, those are the people who have been overcharging us selling us stale bread and bad meat and wilted vegetables. And they sold out and moved to Florida. I think they've ripped off our communities enough. First it was Jews, then it was Koreans and now it's Arabs; very few black people own these stores."

Frankly I'm saddened but not surprised by lame remarks made by some individuals who've been too long on the podium and narcissistic enough to believe that the every conclusion that comes in their heads must be divinely inspired, particularly after having walked with the saints. It's pathetic to see some men show us what they're really made of by their blockheaded but nonetheless informative remarks, particularly when they're uncalculated. Remarks like Andrew Young's. Stepping down from payroll as one of Walmart's propagandists, justifying Walmart's pursuit to exist in the old neighborhood (after all, it's already been decimated anyway, he'd probably note, by those people he's been pointing at), I would hope that he might want to take back some of what he said. I don't think he has to recant all of it in view of my agreement with a small part of his perspective (not his bigotry though), that the phenomenon of the ubiquitous 'friendly ghetto supermarket' has existed, probably will always exist with its dented cans, rotten food, and surreal pricing schemes. This is not unfamiliar to anybody who's lived on that side of town (a lot of college students of all persuasions have lived there too for obvious reasons). And among all of us who have lived there, there are individuals that largely exploit the misfortune of others including those of their own community, ethnic and otherwise. These individuals have no ethnicity, religion, or country of origin, they thrive where they can because they can. These individuals who Andrew Young is so convinced constitute a real group, have always been with us in all communities rich and poor and will always be with us, so long as we're indoctrinated into separate worlds, with separate beliefs and interests. As long as there are Andrew Youngs to enlighten us with these brilliant differentiations, there will always be victims in poor neighborhoods to be exploited. Ironically Andrew Young does a great disservice in view of a lifetime of service, to the most vulnerable of communities, those he once championed in the good fight. The so-called "Jews, Koreans, and Arabs" live and yes, more often than not, work in those neighborhoods, not so much out of choice (no less than the people welcoming them there) but simply because they have to. Most would take their chances working for and with their neighbors, than "work for the Man" outside, knowing the system simply is not equipped to deal with them nor supportive of their ability to work even less speak. As a final somewhat more troubling note, it sounds like Andrew Young's divisive conclusions could be part of a much larger agenda kowtowing to those who have the power and playing that tiresome race card to stay in the game.
